Editorial Reviews

Review

“Luis de Lión’s novel is an exceptional text. It is one of a few truly valuable additions to a transcultural canon that would include works such as those by José María Arguedas, Rulfo, and Asturias.” —Juan E. De Castro, author of Mestizo Nations: Culture, Race, and Conformity in Latin American Literature


"De Lión’s language glistens like that copper sun: stunningly imagistic, inventive, athletic, and utterly arresting. The poetics of the uncertain informs not only the subject matter but also the kaleidoscopic quality of his writing. This is a story to be chewed, digested, and savored."--Santa Fe New Mexican

About the Author

Luis de Lión was a primary teacher who worked in rural schools in various parts of Guatemala and later taught classes at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala City. On May 15, 1984, he was kidnapped by a death squad of the Guatemalan dictatorship as part of the anti-insurgency “dirty war,” because much of what he wrote was critical of the Guatemalan government. He is presumed to have been killed three weeks later. Born and raised in Guatemala, translator Nathan C. Henne now teaches Latin American Studies and Spanish at Loyola University New Orleans.

Format: Paperback
This novel exemplifies and illuminates so much about Guatemalan culture- the crisis of self and identity, the clash of cultures and different modes of understanding reality, time and experience. Pascual's journey is not the only one here- Concha is a transgressive character, revealing the complexities of indigenous truth. This novel will open your eyes and make you think- shocking at times, poignant at others and always illustrating a rich imagery that will leave you gasping.
